Coding With Khan Academy by Izzy

In technology, we are learning how to code on Khan Academy. We have also learned new vocabulary words such as algorithm, nesting conditional statements, and abstraction. Algorithm means a series of instructions in a specific order to complete a specific task. A conditional statement is the rules inside of a condition using if/else statements. Abstraction means to pull out specific information to make one solution work for multiple problems.  Khan Academy is teaching us how to code in a challenging, but fun way!

Coding with Shapes by Morgan

In class, we are learning how to make lines of code by using Khan Academy. Our class is being taught how to make a face using variables, ellipses, and other codes. Variables are place holders for information. Our class has also learned what an algorithm is. An algorithm is a set of instructions that makes something happen or occur. We are being educated in an enjoyable, yet difficult way. Mrs. Mittleman's class is having fun using Khan Academy and learning all about coding!
